I read on another site that Kimi first had diff problems on Friday. Don't know why it wasn't fixed for today but I hope that they can get it fixed by tomorrow.

For some reason, these technical glitches seem to always occur on the same side of the garage.

Add to it the behaviour of some team members, who come whining in the press that Kimi is too picky regarding the specs of his steering, that it's causing them too much work, that he did not take part in free practice in Monaco, etc...

At best, this reveals a serious lack of leadership at Renault/Lotus/Genii/whatever. And at worse, well, let's hope they're not using Kimi to build up Grosjean... :rolleyes:

At least with Kimi you know he's not waffling sh*t he tells it as it is. I reckon once they get that car sorted we will see him back to winning ways. IF they ever get it sorted.

@CaptainKaramelo, "At best, this reveals a serious lack of leadership at Renault/Lotus/Genii/whatever. And at worse, well, let's hope they're not using Kimi to build up Grosjean..." As Ferrari did with Kimi to build up Massa. Then Massa wrecks & all of a sudden Kimi is winning & on the podium. Ferrari asks Kimi why didn't you tell us what you wanted. Kimi said, "I did". That is all that he can do. They took away Kimi's test day at Mugello & gave it to RG. I hope that none of this is going on bcuz Boullier is Grosjean's private mgr. We will never know. :)

all these deluded kimi fans finding excuses for the driver who is not playing with the team . He is becoming a disruption and i think it is time for the team to get behind Grosjean forward as it seems kimi is only helping is team to back.

come on Grosjean.
